The duty to preach hell and judgment

by Robert Strivens4 October 2013

It is the preacher’s duty to remind people of the reality of judgment and of hell.

This is neither a pleasant nor an easy responsibility to discharge. We tend to go to one of two extremes: either we neglect the subject altogether, as too difficult, or we harp on about it constantly without speaking enough about the love and mercy of God in Christ and without a due sense of compassion for the lost.
